Obama to start tweeting – himself

(CNN) - President Obama's re-election campaign is vowing President Obama will actually start tweeting himself. The @BarackObama account was active throughout the 2008 presidential campaign, but Obama himself did not use it. Obama's first ever real tweet came from the Red Cross twitter feed in January of 2010.

    Count me in that group, too. I think the whole idea of *followers* is kind of creepy and makes my skin crawl. Makes my skin crawl. Maybe I've seen too many horror movies where the heroes are chased by groups of *followers*.

    There are going to be a lot of complaints about this, not a good idea. It's worse than playing golf.

    I can think of another thing he can do to himself. Report some news CNN, like Obummie ruining this country's economy!!!! Housing market worse than the great depression, unemployment at rates we haven't seen in generations, the laughing stock of foriegn policy, etc. etc. Obummie is a joke of the worst kind.
